Roman amphitheater site
Oct 2021
The Roman amphitheater is in the center of town. Only partly excavated and restored as it is covered by many more recent buildings. No entry is currently allowed to tourists.

Others are using this location for a general review of Lecce. The medieval town walls still stand. The streets are very walkable as the town is fairly level. Many attractions await the eager explorer. The people are pleasant and welcoming.

Beautiful city over run by street hawkers and beggars, Bella città invasa da venditori ambulanti e mendicanti/
Jun 2021 • Couples
There’s lots to love about Lecce but absolutely not the plague of street hawkers who pounce on you the minute you pause or sit down to eat or drink, They are relentless, and even when you succumb and buy something or give them some money the same ones are back within thirty minutes and hurl a torrent of abuse of you if you explain you’ve just given them money - it really ruins Lecce/
C'è molto da amare su Lecce ma assolutamente non la piaga dei venditori ambulanti che ti si avventano addosso nel momento in cui ti fermi o ti siedi a mangiare o bere, sono implacabili, e anche quando soccombi e compri qualcosa o dai loro dei soldi gli stessi sono tornati entro trenta minuti e lanciano un torrente di insulti su di te se spieghi che hai appena dato loro dei soldi - rovina davvero Lecce

Beautiful city, easy to walk
Sep 2020
The Centro Storico is not huge and easy to walk. Especially the smaller street leading to the gates are very nice to walk. Beautiful churches and with the Church pass (EUR9) you can visit the main ones. The others are usually free. Worth the spend a full day here.

Very beatiful city
Oct 2020
Lecce is a very pleasant city with a big old town and many churches and cathedrals who are decorated in a local baroque style. Take at least 1 day but better more.

Important amphitheater
Aug 2020 • Family
This is a very nice amphitheater located directly in the center of the city, one of the most important amphitheater of the region. It can be seen freely, but for the time being it cannot be visited.

Beautiful baroque city
Aug 2020 • Couples
First stop of our holiday to Puglia, 2 nights here in a lovely Airbnb, which is plenty as it’s not a very big city so very easy to wander around. But it’s HOT! Photos say it all as it’s beautiful and churches, buildings stunning.
